  1. Windows 10 - Error message - Administrator rights on Dropbox


    Hello,

    My new computer has Windows 10. And since then, I can't modify certains files in my Dropbox. I can modify excel/word/ppt files, but I can't modify tex or R files which I used to modify with Windows 7. I have an error message stating that I don't have the writing rights and that I should contact the administrator of my computer, which is me (I checked on my account details). I also checked the proprieties of the Dropbox folder and I have all the rights.

    Could you help me with this problem? Thank you!

    :)

  3. Windows Update Error Message 0x80070543


    Ya Ya Ya, there's over a hundred threads like this, ...

    Anyway, started getting this error message a few days ago, and done a lot of searching on this error message, apparently it's not, uncommon.

    In particular, the (currently) 4 updates that are being affected are:
    • Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 (KB3173428) - Error 0x80070543
    • Security Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 (KB3172729) - Error 0x80070543
    • Security Update for Adobe Flash Player for Windows 10 Version 1511 (KB3174060) - Error 0x80070543
    • Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 (KB3176493) - Error 0x80070543

    The actions I've taken to date are:
    1. Uninstalled firewall program (comodo)
    2. Uninstalled anti-virus (Avast)
    3. Reset the windows update catalog on local machine.

    So the above errors are with the above done.

    What other steps should I be taking to resolve the issue?

    Below is notations for when I actually add to this thread.
